For sponsors looking for a budget friendly presentation option in the ATS 2024 Exhibit Hall, an Innovation Hub presentation is the perfect choice. Innovation Hubs provide an intimate venue for sponsors to create a dynamic interaction with attendees. The sponsor is given the opportunity to do a brief presentation and then engage the audience with a challenge or question to prompt discussion. The discussion allows attendees to interact with both the presenter and each other for a richer educational experience.

Available Sunday through Tuesday, this learning experience consists of burst sessions of 15-20 minutes, led by subject-matter experts from industry. A Burst Session consists of a 10-minute burst outlining a problem statement, mitigating factors, the host’s perspective/solution, and a challenge or question posed to attendees, who discuss for the remaining 5-10 minutes.
